To practice what we preach from an Inclusion and Diversity perspective, wouldn’t it be beneficial to use diverse teams of interviewers? Are any B4s making an effort towards that?

We should attempt to resolve the issue of racism by bringing people together and briding the gap, what you are suggesting might do more harm than good.

This could cause further segregation like judges of same race, teachers of same race, cops of same race.

This moves from Diversity and INCLUSION to diversity and SEGREGATION

Isnt the OP about selection of interviewers? It cascades from there

Not an easy solution as some people appear to think. Including or excluding someone based on their race or physical characteristic is a slippery slope. Definitely need solutions that allow to-be colleagues to feel heard and comfortable in the interview process but simplistic fixes will cause more harm in the long term.

I knew someone would play the “racist” card here.

Representation matters. There’s already an effort to do this, perhaps not mandated at a high level

like

Guy right above me played it, pretty obviously too

It’s definitely a tough topic to mandate. But it’s also a topic that needs to be discussed, rather than dismissing it because it’s hard to mandate.

That seems kind of racist?

This is such a dumb and lazy argument. America isn’t “organically” majority white with Black and brown people at the bottom. It’s the product of centuries of social engineering and policy. Yet anytime one wants to focus on race in a way that de-centers the majority it’s a party foul.

I would be shocked if all firms aren’t already focused on bringing diverse interviewers. I know at my B4 firm it’s a big focus.

K1. Not what was suggested by me at all. Not sure where you got that from. Yes, interviewers. No, on changing interview teams based on interviewees.

When we do campus recruiting, we do focus on making sure there is diversity in interviewers for the second round super days.

like

A lot of it just comes down to planning, availability and scale.

We know well in advance and can block our calendars for the super days. And each candidate sees four to five interviewers, so there is a large pool that needs to come together, and allows for many different kinds of diversity (race, gender, background, lgbtq+, etc)

With the ad hoc experience hires, there are only two interviewers and it depends who has availability. So, logistically it's tougher to have the same diversity. I think while it's a consideration, it comes down to who's available.

Anybody who has felt maxed out in recruitment? What do you do? Do you try other industries first but stay in recruitment or do you try to change positions with more diversity of tasks? I now feel that everything I do is the same old, and although they say I am doing a good job, it is also a constant stress daily for applicants not showing up, failing pre-employment requirements, etc and I wonder if this is also present in other areas of HR.

Need advice: Received a race and gender discrimination complaint from an employee involving 2 company C-level execs, one of them to whom I report. Usually I would conduct my own internal investigation. Since this involves the highest levels, I can’t escalate it, I’m not an employment law expert, I’m a generalist. My plan is to involve our outside employment counsel. Usually I go through one of the execs before interacting with outside counsel. (Continued in comments)

Hi ladies, looking for advice:
My team is tiny and we're recruiting for someone below my level

Myself and the only other junior (above me) both didn't decide to push one candidate forward as she was just eh (and personally, she no-showed once and was late) plus there were definitely better candidates

However, my manager wanted to push her forward anyways (I believe for diversity/personal bias)

Given my manager has a lot of influence in general, I'm stressed she's going to get the role
